New stock turbos?

Was wondering if the stock turbos from a cadillac v sport could be mounted onto an LFX V6?

I was wonder the same thing (or ATS-V) a while back, but I haven't had a chance to look at one. My guess is the steering column in the 5th Gen will be in the way.

+1 I don't think they will clear the steering shaft. The passengers side might have some clearance issues with the coolant tubes also, and some of the other junk over there. I believe the ATS has electric power steering, so there must be no steering shaft in the way?

I'm sure a guy could make it work if things could be moved around, but it wouldn't be an easy task.

Electric steering shouldn't get rid of the shaft, still need a way to turn without power. My Mustangs are both electric power and still have the steering shaft. The power steering control is flat against the K-member, if you can retrofit a setup like that you can remove the pump, save some room.

BTW, has anyone looked at the under-hood pictures for the ATS-V. That LF4 is packed in there.

That's not terrible really, about the same as what I'm running price wise I think.
